A Collaboration between Skulptur Projekte Münster and Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl

With the Westphalian city of Marl, Münster is expanding the object of its study – with its tradition for art in the public space, the city in the Ruhr region offers an exciting counterpoint. Because both topographically and sociographically, Marl marks the interface between the Ruhr region and Westphalia/Münsterland and has a tradition of its own in the realm of art in public space. There, the relics of a visionary building culture can still be seen and experienced.

THE HOT WIRE comprises a variety of project components in the indoor and outdoor area: Artists who work in both cities, exchange of sculptures, an exhibition of models from the Skulptur Projekte archive and Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl and a wealth of reciprocal visits, including by the authors of the writing project KUR UND KÜR in Münster.
